My name is Amanda and I'm currently doing research into one of the Native Hawaiian branches of my family and was hoping someone out there may be able to help me since I've gotten stuck.
My great-grandmother on my father's side is Mary Lupenui (who married Kaikuahine Waiale'e). I've heard from my father (and have found some records to confirm) that the Lupenui side of my family is from Kapapala Ranch in Ka'u on the Big Island. From my research, I've found that Mary's father (my great-great-grandfather) is Nani Lupenui (don't know his wife), and that his mother is possibly named Kala/Kalama Bila. But I don't know any of that info for sure, nor do I know anything about those people based on the research I've been able to do on my own so far, or anything more than this.
If anyone has any information on this Lupenui branch, I would be so, so appreciative if you'd share!
